"Trivia question: What is the most cited work in the mathematical literature? With an estimated 40,000 citations, the Handbook of Mathematical Functions may well be it. Edited by Milton Abramowitz and Irene Stegun and released by the National Bureau of Standards in 1964, the Handbook was the result of a ten-year project to compile essential information on the special functions of applied mathematics (e.g., Bessel functions, hypergeometric functions, and orthogonal polynomials) for use in... favorite ( 1 reviews ) Topics: Functions, Mathematics--Tables
This paper is an extension and revision of a previous paper by Rosa and Cohen. It is now by far the most complete and thorough study of the subject that has yet been published. The authors have taken great pains to bring it thoroughly up to date, and have made a critical study of nearly all the recent papers on the subject. The comparisons of the results obtained by various authors and the invcstigations of the convergence of the various series that have been proposed have cleared up the whole...
